Urinating Under the Lights of Orchard Street

Posted on: December 4th, 2012 at 10:22 am by

Early Sunday morning, this middle-aged chump stopped in the middle of the Orchard Street sidewalk to relieve himself. In plain sight. Not content to hide behind any of the many obstructions, the guy shamelessly furnished his brick and drained the lizard without a care in the world.

The other hand was used to press the cell phone firmly to his ear. Wonder if the person on the other end of the call knew of his urinating…

Unfortunately, this is a common sight these days.

Comfort Diner is Opening on Grand Street Later This Week

It was around this time last year – the Jewish high holidays – that Noah’s Ark kosher deli closed in observance. Never to reopen, despite some assurances to the contrary. Holy Schnitzel subsequently made a run for the establishment yet ultimately was passed over for the Comfort Diner. For the Midtown-based diner, the pin in […]

    Yes, this is a big problem on the LES. I see this all the time – especially in Seward Park. since the park is often closed late. There are countless men that I see from my window going into the park evenings and nights to urinate. There is no use in calling 311 because the offender is long gone by the time I have called.

    Don’t lament the passing of McGurk’s and 295 bowery and then lambast this dude for relieving himself in the street. This guy is bringing back the good bad ole days that you long for.
